was going to become engaged through nato in ways that met our interest, i think, at the time, and got the job done. i thought it was smart. i thought the way he approached that was, in fact, very effective. and the results, obviously, were exactly what we wanted to achieve. we could tell if we did this, senator mccain you were deeply involved in that, we recommended no fly. we pushed for certain things, and those things were put into place. and it was affected without american boots being put on the ground at a time where we had just come out of iraq and we have american soldiers, largest number, in afghanistan. and so i think the american people approved of the way in which that was handled. now, the aftermath of all of these places -- i asked every member of the committee, we need to spend some time on this, all of us. there is a monumental transformation taking place. this is the biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the ottoman empire. since it came apart. as all of us know, many of the countries lines drawn, were drawn in relatively arbitrary fashion. people were put i

was kind of the easy thing. the tough thing was building nato afterwards. wasn't winning world war ii the tough thing? i think it's a revealing little insight into his mind that deep down all this war stuff, that was kind of in the past, and sometimes you had to do it, but that's not really what a real statesman of the 21st century does. international engagement and avoid war at all costs. jon: some have suggested that the policies he pushed or emphasized like, you know, expanding gay marriage, for instance, don't cost anything, don't take money out of the federal budget. >> well, that might be true in some case cans, but again there, i mean, he makes that sound as if there's a universal consensus in the united states that gay rights is of the same standing as the civil rights movement from selma to stonewall. wasn't president obama himself not in favor of gay marriage until six months ago? do you have to believe in same-sex marriage if you believe in the principles of the declaration of independence? i don't think so. i don't think most americans think that's just obviously the right
